The Broad Dollar Index is comprised of a much larger or broad basket of currencies than the USDX which we more commonly reference. In this regards, it is a better representation of the how the Dollar is faring on the world currency markets. Notice how weak it has become and how close it is to challenging a key downside support level.
The inability of the US government to come to grips with its fiscal problems combined with the Fed's asinine Quantitative Easing policies are crushing the Dollar.
"When misguided public opinion honors what is despicable and despises what is honorable, punishes virtue and rewards vice, encourages what is harmful and discourages what is useful, applauds falsehood and smothers truth under indifference or insult, a nation turns its back on progress and can be restored only by the terrible lessons of catastrophe." … Frederic Bastiat
Evil talks about tolerance only when it’s weak. When it gains the upper hand, its vanity always requires the destruction of the good and the innocent, because the example of good and innocent lives is an ongoing witness against it. So it always has been. So it always will be. And America has no special immunity to becoming an enemy of its own founding beliefs about human freedom, human dignity, the limited power of the state, and the sovereignty of God. – Archbishop Chaput
